Project statement

Subject to scrutiny is a sculptural installation composed of approximately 100 cameras mounted on tripods and directed towards a single point in space. As the viewer circulates around the work they witness the cameras flashing and hear the sounds of the shutter opening and closing. The work recalls situations where photographers are assembled to photograph celebraties or VIPs.  But here the cameras appear to have taken on a life of their own.  There are no humans directing the cameras and no apparent subject except an empty point in space.  

This is a work that sees itself.  A work collapsing into a empty, subject-less universe.
